Cover Oregon Making Some Progress on Enrolling People


That's a significant increase from the 700 enrolled only last week.

 

Dr. Bruce Goldberg, the acting leader of "Cover Oregon" held his  weekly news briefing Monday and wants to get the word out, people have options.

 

"There's been a lot of fear and confusion and concern from people that they could be uninsured on January 1st.  We want people to know how they can get coverage."

 

Goldberg says if you currently have insurance, you can continue that plan for a month and then reapply at Cover Oregon in January for February.

 

If you don't have coverage, you can apply directly with the insruance carriers -- and you cannot be denied for a pre-existing condition.

 

You have unti  the end of March to apply for coverage at Cover Oregon without penalty, but obviously your coverage won't start by January first.
